>> Welcome to the Mecca of kitchen utensils,
Kappabashi. This mile-long neighborhood in western
Tokyo contains stores that sell the supplies for
restaurants and homes and things like that. And here you
can pretty much find anything.
>> Gaze upon my stack of fine giant coffee cups and
>> Any kind of plastic food you would want, they have it
here. American food, Japanese food, pizza, the whole
shebang. Here's the bread collection. Toast, sweet
rolls, and there's an English muffin just out of the
deep fryer right there.
>> Hey, who wants ice cream? Hello, giant pig. It's
been a long time.
>> Porcelain signs, plastic ware, utensils, industrial
equipment, home equipment, whatever you need, they have
here. Who oversees this giant [Inaudible] of cooking?
Why, Mr. Chef himself. He's right in the corner
indicating where to go.
>> And the one really handy thing about Kappabashi is
that you can never get lost. There's speakers hanging
over the stores lining the streets, and they continually
play this one song over and over and over. Kappabashi
